I am supposed to writing a paper right now. Yeah. Instead I am doing everything but writing a paper about an awesome trip I had. So, I have been reading a little bit more lately.  Usually when school is in, I don’t get to read for fun as much as I would like, but lately, […]

It’s back to school for me…Operations Management! I was so engaged last night, I actually pulled up my development environment and coded while in class! How much of a nerd am I? So, in order to combat some of the craziness that is going to happen with this summer class, I have decided it is […]

This is one amazing woman. She has these beautiful fabrics and awesome patterns she designs. I envy a person who is able to do what she enjoys and make a living at it. That would be my ultimate goal. Now, Ms. Butler has a book with more than 25 sewing projects. When I was at […]

To get ready for the Sockapal2za, I decided I needed Nancy Bush’s Knitting on the Road. But to get free shipping, I needed to order $25 in books. OK! So I decided that I should try to find a beginner beading/jewelry making book. I found Getting Started Stringing Beads. I have been interested in how […]

Milestones First, I want to say Happy Birthday to Chicago. Yes, this second city is 168 today. And it even survived a cow and a lantern… Second, the person, or rather the person whose magazine inspired me to learn to knit is out of prision today–Martha Stewart. I learned from an article in one of […]
